I just got caught up with the last 2 episodes and am eagerly looking forward to the new one tonight. For me, this show is terrific. McPhee is so well cast in this part and has some real acting chops - not Academy Award stuff, but better than I would have guessed for an A.I. product. The unfolding story, though a bit heavy inside Broadway, is interesting and well done - and it's supposed to be 'inside Broadway'. I see it far more than a Glee for grownups with its much more layered characters and real story. Some of Glee's various agendas are occasionally present here as well, but actually well layered into the story vs. just in-your-face preaching.
I've never seen McPhee do a rockin', dancin' country song like the one from last week - and it was terrific. The other Broadway vets are also welcome. I'm really enjoying this, especially as my interest in Glee fades.
